Swimming physiology of fish: , 2013 Towards using exercise to farm a fit fish in sustainable aquaculture

Langue : Anglais

Coordonnateurs : Palstra Arjan P., Planas Josep V.

Couverture de l’ouvrage Swimming physiology of fish:
In light of mounting fishing pressures, increased aquaculture production and a growing concern for fish well-being, improved knowledge on the swimming physiology of fish and its application to fisheries science and aquaculture is needed. This book presents recent investigations into some of the most extreme examples of swimming migrations in salmons, eels and tunas, integrating knowledge on their performance in the laboratory with that in their natural environment. For the first time, the application of swimming in aquaculture is explored by assessing the potential impacts and beneficial effects. The modified nutritional requirements of "athletic" fish are reviewed as well as the effects of exercise on muscle composition and meat quality using state-of-the-art techniques in genomics and proteomics. The last chapters introduce zebrafish as a novel exercise model and present the latest technologies for studying fish swimming and aquaculture applications.
Part I. Extreme swimming in the natural environment. Salmonid reproductive migration and effects on sexual maturation. Extreme swimming: the oceanic migrations of anguillid eels. Physiology of swimming and migration in tunas. Part II. Potential impacts on swimming fish in aquaculture. Forced and preferred swimming speeds of fish ? A methodological approach. Effects of turbulence on fish swimming in aquaculture. The effect of hypoxia on fish swimming performance and behaviour. Exercise, stress and welfare. Part III. Nutrition, energy metabolism and muscular growth in swimming fish. Swimming enhanced growth. Metabolic fuel utilization during swimming: Optimizing nutritional requirements for enhanced performance. Transcriptomic and proteomic response of skeletal muscle to swimming-induced exercise in fish. Molecular adaptive mechanisms in the cardiac muscle of exercised fish. Exercise effects on fish quality and implications for consumer preferences. Swimming effects on developing zebrafish. Exercise physiology of zebrafish: Swimming effects on skeletal and cardiac muscle growth, on the immune system and the involvement of the stress axis. Part IV. Novel technologies for studying fish swimming and aquaculture applications. Swimming flumes as a tool for studying swimming behavior and physiology: current applications and future developments. Practical aspects of induced exercise in finfish aquaculture. Robotic fish to lead the school.
